Hi All

I've been involved in organising this conference, for which there are still
some last minute spaces left if anyone would like to attend or knows of
someone who might be interested. We are also hosting a free public debate
in the Oxford Union entitled 'Evolution or Revolution in Science
Communication?' to which all are welcome and I would encourage you to
spread the word!

We'll be tweeting at #openoxford and hope to have videos of sessions up on
youtube and iTunesU very shortly after the event so watch out for these if
you can't make it yourself.



Rigour and Openness in 21st Century Science
11-12 April 2013, Oxford

Sir Mark Walport (Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government)
David Willetts (Minsiter for Science and Universities)

We will cover a wide range of open science issues over the two days, with a
focus on scientific rigour and whether open approaches and innovative ways
of conducting and publishing research have the potential to improve the
quality of science.

Two day tickets are only £55 (£10 students)


Evolution or Revolution in Science Communication?
11 April 2013, 17:30-19:30, Oxford Union Debating Chamber

A FREE public debate on the future of the scientific journal - does the
current system support 21st Century science or are we due for a revolution
in scholarly publishing?

Join our prestigious panel to debate this issue as part of the Rigour and
Openness in 21st Century Science conference.
